Hi

Complete AV scan skips files that I think should have been checked. A couple of examples:


C:\WINDOWS\system32\bios1.rom
C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\default
C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\SAM
C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\SECURITY
C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\system
C:\WINDOWS\I386\BIOS1.RO_

It is F-Secure internet security 2006
It is an integrated software with firewall and virus protection. Updates are automatically downloaded.

Gunnar:
The fact that your virus scanner is skipping files is not a good sign. Security suites are usually not the best choice in my humble opinion. F-secure is rated quite highly for its virus scanning software, but when bundled in the suite not so good. Check out this extensive article on virus scanners:
http://www.scotsnewsletter.com/83.htm#avv

Normally if you do have an infection the virus will allow you to run a scan, but will of course protect itself by running a limited scan and telling you all is OK.
You might try running the standalone (doesn't require an install, very helpful if you are infected) virus scanner Stinger from Mcafee. You can find stinger and directions at: http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/
